San Francisco Health Plan Selects Essette to Provide a Comprehensive Care Management Suite

Longmont, Colorado, and San Francisco, California (PRWEB) November 05, 2013

A provider of affordable health care coverage to over 80,000 San Francisco residents, San Francisco Health Plan (SFHP) has partnered with Essette to provide an advanced suite of care management software. A number of Essette’s current clients located in California, and major Essette clients such as the Central California Alliance for Health, served as valuable Essette references to SFHP in their vendor decision.

SFHP chose Essette’s intuitive and powerful user interface for its 360 degree member view and its flexibility for ‘out of the box’ support for SFHP’s innovative, non-traditional care management program. In addition, Essette’s simple software license fee will allow SFHP to grow its membership without suffering escalating costs associated with a per-member; per-month (PMPM) cost structure.

"In our ongoing effort to improve the quality of care for our members and remain steadily focused on our fiscal responsibility, we selected Essette," said John F. Grgurina Jr., CEO of San Francisco Health Plan. "Their software will provide added efficiency for our care management team as we prepare for membership growth in 2014."

A significant Essette feature that helped win SFHP’s contract is the new EssettePM, or Population Management, software module. EssettePM will give SFHP care managers the tools to touch their entire membership. By employing the powerful automated correspondence and ad-hoc reporting engine in other Essette modules, EssettePM opens up new community outreach and sickness prevention opportunities.

"Essette’s flexibility will allow us to care for our members in collaborative ways," said Dr. Kelly Pfeifer, Chief Medical Officer of San Francisco Health Plan. After earning its sixth consecutive Gold Award for Excellence in Quality Care from the Department of Healthcare Services (DHCS) in 2013, SFHP expects to continue to administer award-winning care to its growing population with Essette’s innovative solutions.
